want to drop chemistry

Published

I'm taking anatomy and Introduction to chemistry. The chemistry is killing me. I hate it absolutely. If I get a C

i'll be lucky. I am getting an A in anotomy. How imortand is chemistry, I'm thinking about dropping it so it doesn't

ruin my GPA. I only took it to get into Micro and Phsyio, but I might not need it. Can I drop this course? I've found

it's not a pre req for alot of schools, just seems to be a pre req for micro . Is it importand for the teas?

I am in the Exact same boat, only my nightmare is Micro!!!

And because of the support that's been given to me on this board, I have decided

to "not risk" my GPA and drop this class and take it either at another school or

online.

Please don't spend as much time crying, agonizing, losing sleep, etc as I have

done; it is not worth it.

You can take this class again, and you will do better next time.

If your school allows you to drop it then go for it.

On the other hand, you still need it in order to take micro, right? For me it was also a requirement for physio.

You're not doing yourself any favors by failing it, though.

As to "how important:" The rudimentary concepts are important but you'll see the important stuff in other classes (specifically micro and physio... which is why it's a prerequisite...)

Drop the class and retake it with a different professor or at a different school. Once a bad grade is on your transcript, it's there forever and there's no way to undo it. Don't risk it
